New resident Christian Saint-Pierre was introduced to Acupuncture several years ago while suffering from severe migraines. He was treated 6 times and has been migraine free ever since. His wife, Julie Levesque, had severe allergies to 15 different foods and was seeing an allergist with no real success. She turned to acupuncture and after 12 treatments her allergies almost disappeared. Both are now practicing Tawainese acupuncture, and are certified by the Canadian Association of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (CAATCM).
Mr. Saint-Pierre describes his new business, Access Acupuncture as a community oriented, Taiwanese Acupuncture clinic.
“One of the things that sets us apart is that Taiwanese Acupuncture primarily uses points on the lower arms and legs as well as on the scalp and ears, so it doesn’t require our clients to disrobe,” said Mr. Saint-Pierre. “They simply have to roll up their sleeves and pant legs, then sit back and relax in our clinic’s communal treatment room. This allows us to provide quick, highly effective treatments, often with instant results.”
Ms. Levesque explains the couple’s community minded approach.
“Our goals are to minimize the number of treatments people need to correct an existing health problem and allow them easy access to continuing treatment if they need it. By making our treatments as accessible, affordable and effective as possible, people can get treated quickly and frequently enough to get relief, feel better, and stay better.”
The couple are relatively new to this community. They chose to settle in Cornwall due to its proximity to Montreal and its appeal as a great place to raise children.
The clinic is located in the Baldwin Medical Centre at 305 Baldwin Avenue and is open Monday and Wednesday 10am to 9pm and Tuesday and Thursday 10am to 6pm. Visit them on-line at www.AccessAcupuncture.ca
